After this latest patch (The Underworld 4.25) I noticed at least one of my programs not initiating.
After some troubleshooting, I've realized that Hi-Rez Authenticate and Update Service is preventing at least one of my applications to run (MendeleyDesktop.exe) and only by disabling it and booting the system will Mendeley work again.
Since i used both programs on a daily basis, this is a very troubling situation, since I would have to reboot the system every time I want to play Smite.
I hope there is a quick resolution to this issue.
Thanks for the help.
